Configure Network Sites for CAC
Topic Last Modified: 2010-11-10
If you have already created network sites for E9-1-1 or media bypass, modify the existing network sites to apply a bandwidth policy profile by using the Set-CsNetworkSite cmdlet. For an example of how to modify a network site, see Create or Modify a Network Site.
Network sites are the offices or locations within each network region of call admission control, E9-1-1, and media bypass deployments. Use the following procedures to create network sites that align to network sites in the example network topology for call admission control. These procedures show how to create and configure network sites that are constrained by WAN bandwidth and therefore require bandwidth policies that limit real-time audio or video traffic flow.
In the example CAC deployment, the North America region has six sites. Three of these sites are constrained by WAN bandwidth: Reno, Portland, and Albuquerque. The other three sites that are not constrained by WAN bandwidth: New York, Chicago, and Detroit. For an example of how to create or modify those other network sites, see Create or Modify a Network Site.
To view the example network topology, see Example: Gathering the Required Information for Call Admission Control in the Planning documentation.
In the following procedure, Lync Server Management Shell is used to create a network site. For information about using Lync Server 2010 Control Panel to create a network site, see Create or Modify a Network Site.
To create network sites for call admission control
Start the Lync Server Management Shell: Click Start, click All Programs, click Microsoft Lync Server 2010, and then click Lync Server Management Shell.
Run the New-CsNetworkSite cmdlet to create network sites and apply an appropriate bandwidth policy profile to each site. For example, run:
New-CsNetworkSite -NetworkSiteID Reno -Description "NA:Branch office for sales force" -NetworkRegionID NorthAmerica -BWPolicyProfileID 10MB_Link New-CsNetworkSite -NetworkSiteID Portland -Description "NA:Branch office for marketing force" -NetworkRegionID NorthAmerica -BWPolicyProfileID 5MB_Link New-CsNetworkSite -NetworkSiteID Albuquerque -Description "NA:Branch office for SouthWest sales" -NetworkRegionID EMEA -BWPolicyProfileID 10MB_Link
To finish creating network sites for the entire example topology, repeat step 2 for the bandwidth constrained network sites in the EMEA and APAC regions.
